Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Hargrove, 24 December 1807

Baltimore 24h. Decr. 1807

The President of the U. States of America, Is requested to accept the inclosed pamphlet, from his real and affectionate friend the subscriber;—as an appropriate Christmas gift, though small in value;—as he knows not whether the President may have yet seen it.

The Subscriber has just received a few copies from a friend, lately arrived from England; And though he disclaims the character of a Politician he never has that of a Patriot; or of the friend of the present Administration, particularly of its Chief Magistrate, to whom with all due respect & “Godly sincerity” he begs leave to renew his assurances of high esteem & Christian Obedience &c. &c.
